The DMC-C is an input card for a Crestron® DigitalMedia™ Switcher, providing one DM 8G+™ input. The DM 8G+ input enables the connection of a DM 8G+ Transmitter, or the output of another DM® switcher. Just one 8-conductor twisted-pair cable is required, supporting distances up to 330 feet (100 m) using CAT5e or Crestron DigitalMedia 8G™ Cable.
In addition to DM 8G+, the DMC-C is also compatible with HDBaseT™ specifications, allowing it to be connected directly to any HDBaseT compliant source.
Power over DM (PoDM) and Power over HDBaseT (PoH) are available from the DM IN port of the DMC-C card to power a compatible DM 8G+ transmitter or HDBaseT device. To enable PoDM or PoH, simply connect a PoE source (Crestron PWE-4803RU, CEN-SW-POE-5, CEN-SWPOE-16, CEN-SWPOE-24, or equivalent) to the DMC-C's POE IN port.
In addition to the DM 8G+ input, the DMC-C also includes HDMI® and stereo analog audio outputs. The HDMI output can be used to pass the input signal through to a local audio processor or video monitor, or to feed a second DM switcher for output expansion purposes. The analog audio output, which features programmable volume control, breaks out the stereo audio signal from the DM 8G+ input and passes it through to feed a multi-room audio distribution system.
NOTE: For applications requiring the simultaneous distribution of surround sound and 2-channel audio signals, use model DMC-C-DSP.
The DMC-C may also be used with the DMCI DigitalMedia Card Interface to provide a DM 8G+ receiver solution that's perfect for installation in an equipment rack or AV cart, or as a portable display interface. As a DM 8G+ receiver, and as a DM switcher input card, the DMC-C enables EDID signal detection and format management, CEC device control, and audio breakaway.
